Dragon Hunters

"The world has become a vast conglomerate of islands of varying size and shape. This babbling universe is mainly populated with ruthless rogues, surly peasants and illiterate, petty lords. Their main concerns revolve around two fundamental rules: Eat and don't get eaten. For this new world has become infested with a terrible plague: omnipresent, monstrously famished, mutant creatures, are wreaking havoc - They are known as the Dragons. Gwizdo and Lian-Chu are two dragon hunters, but are a long way from being among the best. Their only real talents: the size of the hulking brute with the heart of gold, Lian-Chu, and Gwizdo's talent for scams of all and any shape or form. Their sole ambition: to buy a little farm where they can relax and raise mussels, a creature that is a lot less unpleasant and difficult to hunt down than dragons. A few islands away rises the fortress of Lord Arnold. Arnold has a problem: he's living in terror at the thought of the return of World Eater..."

I absolutely loved this movie; and - if you haven't already seen it - I advise you to do so! Especially if you enjoy fantasy type movies!

Sounds like a cool story... if it doesn't get toooooo complicated.

I watched the trailer and it looks pretty scary for really little kids. Maybe for older ones?
LOL@Iggy--mussel farmer! ;)

Iggy:
LOL!

Nope, it doesn't get too complicated. I was able to follow it just fine even without audio description, if that helps.

Rita:
Yeah, I'd think older kids too... At least in the 8 years old and over - knowing enough to know it's not real, but still loving fairytales - type of catagory. I'd be reluctant to allow younger children than that to watch it, personally.

I haven't heard of this one. Not sure if it was widely released here in the U.S. Will look for it though, as it looks good.
